Welcome to the Family!

The question you posed IS a good one, but has been beaten w a stick in 'general discussion' if you search for 'starter bike' etc.

The larger the engine, likely less forgiveness the bike offers. There is a difference between an SS or sport cruiser bike. A 600cc sport touring bike will offer alot more forgiveness and weight to the ride vs a bike that is made to be thrown around.

Remember your first bike will definitely not be your last... and you will drop and damage it.

the motocross bike was a 125 i think.
Save your money! Get a 650R Ninja and you'll have a great starter bike and one that you'll keep a while.

It's a very forgiving bike with power. The throttle isn't twitchy enough to make you loose it and it handles well.
